Content

EUMASLI is an innovative international master study programme that is intended to contribute to the development of the professional field of interpreting between deaf and hearing people in Europe. It aims to prepare participants for research, development, and management functions in their respective countries.

EUMASLI's strength lies in its international outlook and in its collaborative spirit. Organised and delivered by Magdeburg-Stendal University of Applied Sciences (Germany), Humak University of Applied Sciences (Finland) and Heriot-Watt University (Scotland), the programme brings together teachers and students from around the world in a joint effort to move the field of sign language interpreting forward. It affords scope for individual development and encourages cooperation across geographical, cultural and conceptual borders.

Over the study period of 2.5 years, students travel to participate in block-seminars at all partner universities and engage in online activities and self-study.
